Editor’s note Mon 12/12/22: the St. Lucia events previously posted below are scheduled for Tuesday 12/13/22. The Reader regrets our error.

Join Andersonville residents and celebrate the holidays the Swedish way, with St. Lucia and the Lucia Procession. Lucia girls, in white robes and candle crowns, will be crowned at noon at the temporary Nordic House in the Wrigley building downtown (400 N. Michigan). Later, there will be a procession up Clark Street in Andersonville, starting from the Swedish American Museum (5211 N. Clark) at 4:45 PM, followed by a 5 PM musical performance near the christmas tree at 1500 W. Catalpa. More music, readings, and a final St. Lucia procession starts at 7 PM at Ebenezer Lutheran Church (1650 W. Foster). All events are free with no tickets required. (TA)

Wow, what a nice leisurely day for some go-go dancing. At 1 PM, 60s dance expert and Old Town School of Folk Music faculty member Krista Ortgiesan will be teaching an hour-long workshop on far out dance moves from the era at the school (4544 N. Lincoln). Don your most comfortable workout attire (although don’t be shy about any sequins) to shimmy and shake through the afternoon. It’s only $20 to join ($18 for members). Can’t make it today? Don’t worry! This class occurs monthly, and there’s a holiday edition next week! (MC)

Last month Gossip Wolf let us know about Chicago rapper Matt Muse’s Love & Nappyness Hair Care Drive, an effort he’s led over the last four years to raise funds and arrange donations of personal-hygiene and hair-care products to Englewood’s Maria Shelter as well as Saint Leonard’s Ministries, a west side organization providing services to formerly incarcerated people. The drive ends today, and culminates this evening in the Long Hair Don’t Care Show, an evening of music featuring Muse, Tobi Lou, Senite, and DJ Ca$h Era at Thalia Hall (1227 W. 18th St.). The concert, open to those 17+, starts at 7 PM; tickets are available at Ticketweb. (SCJ)
